    Both good ideas. I’ll have to see how long/thick a piece I can form in the press but I’m liking the idea of removing the entire side with the seam.

    IMO $20 for you guys in the USA is a good deal. My cost to Canada with exchange taxes and shipping would be close to double the price.

    You can always try to make a jig similar to how you made the hooks. A "U" shaped bottom die and then a pusher on top.

    ATM I’m leaning towards trimming one wall off the square tube.

    Might be easier to make a couple at a time without worrying about repeatability on my bends with the press. Production work isn’t one of my strong suits.

    Thought the same thing when I saw it. Love that catalog!

    I've been pondering a swing-out wall mount for my Jet 2x48 grinder. It'd be nice to have it tucked up against the wall when I don't need it, but still easy to pull out and lock in place when I do need it.

    this is how I remove the seam in 2-1/2" tube for 2" to slide inside.

    Re: Welding Fixture Table

    It wouldn't fit up under the table as tight, but the receiver I used for the Shorty leg vise came from Princess auto.... it was a 14" weld on hitch on sale for $14 Cdn. Hardly worth messing with tubing for that price. I think regular is around $20 but it's drilled, thick tube, and no welds to deal with.

    In the past I’ve bought a length of seamless tube.The same stuff the trailer hitch guys use.

    I needed 2 foot lengths to pass under my 3” top welding table to accommodate heavy situations.

    I have to buy new 1/2”x24” belts for my belt sander. I made the HUGE mistake of buying a box of Klinspoor off eBay.

    They were either way past their “best before date” or stored improperly as the taped splices break easily.

    I thought you had to heat the table to 1400 degrees in an atmosphere of nitrogen, CO2, and hydrogen to nitride it?

    These are the guys to use, I buy everything from them and my 6"x 48" belts just keep cutting and so do the 2"x 42" belts.

    Not certain. I've had conflicting info in the past. Also heard it is dipped in a tank???

    Try using a hot glue gun on inside and outside joint. I did that with old belts and it helped. I also added a strip of heavy duty Super glue Tape to the inside.

    Thanks Bob I will try the Super glue tape.

    I tried burnishing Gorilla tape strips on but with limited success. Perhaps part of the problem is the narrowness of the belt widths I am working with. (1/2" wide).

    I used it on 1x42 belts. The hot glue made a difference for sure.
    Mine may not have been as old as yours.

    For what you're trying to accomplish, you could just make up some "staples" from some 2"x1/4" flat bar. The longer tubing is a nice convenience, but if you think about what does the actual holding, it's only the little part right there by the tightening bolts. Instead of trying to bend one piece that's 8" long, you could break it down into smaller pieces that'll fit in your press and then weld them to the underside of the bench. Probably 50% of the standard tube isn't really doing much work as-is.

    And something like that you would want to test drive many times, just to make sure or course.

    Good idea forming "staples" for horizontal receivers ......but I need the full tube for most of my vertical installations.

    I was thinking about the "staple" concept as well.... but as usual, thicker and uglier but very sturdy. I was contemplating thick angle iron on the sides with a top plate of welded on flat iron...

    He also said “thicker” but I didn’t notice until I read it a third time.

    Nice mount Lis,
    Does the plasma have the same footprint as the Maxstar?
    Do you have a Tig set up for that little guy?
